The Egg™ from Fritz Hansen
Developed for the lobby and reception areas at the Royal Hotel in Copenhagen designed by Arne Jacobsen in 1958. The Egg™ originated in Arne Jacobsen's garage - cast in plaster. Today the synthetic shell is padded with cold foam and covered with fabric or different types of leather resting on a star-shaped aluminum base. As a special anniversary model, we are introducing a beautiful and unique Egg. This Egg will only be available in a limited number of 999 Eggs. Each Egg will be numbered, a brief text about the Egg™ is printed on the back of the cushion and for those who buy the Egg™ we offer a book about the Egg™ and Arne Jacobsen. 999 books, i.e. one book for each Egg will be sent from Fritz Hansen. Visit a Fritz Hansen dealer to see the unique Egg™ upholstered in a smooth chocolate brown Wild Elegance leather on the front and soft suede on the back. The base is hand-polished browned bronze.
Exclusive Danish furniture design. The label Fritz Hansen stands for certificated craftsmanship, uncompromising quality and some of the great classic design furniture such as Arne Jacobsen Ant chairs the Series 7, armchairs like The Swan and The Egg, to name just a few.
